About Credit/No Credit
Grades of Credit (“CR”) are awarded for performance at the level of “D” or above; grades of No Credit (“NC”) are given for performance equivalent to a failing grade (“F”). Credit/no credit courses have no effect on the student’s GPA.
Students may take up to four credit hours per semester on the Credit/No Credit basis but may not present for graduation more than 16 total credit hours of their coursework on this basis. (APL courses are excluded from these totals.) Please be aware that some courses cannot be taken on the CR/NC basis, and others must be taken on the CR/NC basis – a signed card will not override these restrictions established by the faculty as a whole.
Courses to satisfy the divisional distribution requirement may be taken on the Credit/No Credit basis. However, many majors and minors place limitations on the courses in the major/minor that may be taken Credit/No Credit – consult the Catalogue and the department chair.
